With numerous nationally-ranked teams in attendance, the Panthers rolled their first 1,000 series of the season to knock off No. 12 UMES by a 1,016-999 traditional scoreline.
Four of the team’s five starters bowled a 200 in the win, spearheaded by Blanca Fraticelli’s high game of 242.
Wong’s stellar start to an Adelphi career resumed over the weekend, with three 200 games. She averaged a season-high 9.18 pins on her first ball, and impressively converted half her traditional throws for strikes. As the team’s anchor bowler, Wong averaged a 223.3 in the 10th frame alone.
Wong also made more than three-quarters of her makeable spare attempts (19-of-25) over the weekend, converting 12-of-16 (75.0 percent) single-pin spares along the way.
Fraticelli posted just as exceptional numbers in the traditional competition, where she averaged a 192.3 and converted 25-of-30 (83.3 percent) makeable spares — including an 11-for-13 clip on single-pin tries.
Once the calendar flips to 2024, Arthur O’Connor and the Panthers will first travel to Las Vegas, Nev. for the Stormin’ Blue & White Vegas Classic at South Point Bowling Plaza.
